. earlier this year iran threatened to close the strait of hormuz. the united states drew a clear red line, and iran backed off. now, red lines could be drawn in different parts of iran's nuclear weapons program. to be credible a red line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program. on iran's efforts to enrich uranium. now, let me explain why. basically any bomb consists of explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it. the simplest example is gunpowder and a fuse. that is you light the fuse, and you set off the gunpowder. in the case of iran's plans to build a nuclear weapon, the gunpowder is enriched uranium. the fuse is a nuclear detonator. for iran amassing enough enriched uranium is far more difficult than producing the nuclear fuse. for a country like iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. that requires thousands of centrifuges spinning in tandem in big, very big industrial plants. those iranian plants are visible, and they're still vulnerable. in contrast, iran could produce the nuclear detonator, the fuse, in a lot less time. maybe u

they believe that the president of the united states doesn't talk it to world leaders all the time? i understand their fix yation o making an indirect attack. the average voter sitting at home and watching president obama does not sit there and think, he's sitting out there wasting his time not talking it to people. >> they see he's in new york and not meeting and you've got this headline, for example, in first read that says it's obama's do no harm week. they do see that. >> i think they do, but at the end of the day when you're the president and commander in chief and done what he's accomplished on that front, i think you've got an enormous amount of latitude. nobody will second-guess his abl ability to reach out and influence world leaders. i don't think that's an incredible line of attack. this is the part where the romney campaign is really struggling. these flailing attacks you see where they're trying to find something that will stick. that is not a strategy to win. that is a strategy to lose. >> ann, your last thought here, university of cincinnati poll, president obama 51% an

, but these are still again over this movie or film made in the united states. >> reporter: hi there, tamron. the protests were actually about both. the majority was pointed at that film. not enough information has gone out to many countries about those cartoons published in france. across in the border in pakistan we saw violent protests. 15 people were killed as tens of thousands went out to the streets. for the most part throughout the muslim world we didn't see that rage we expected after friday prayers. here in afghanistan we went out to the protests. there were several hundred out there, but they were peacefully protesting. theg they said they didn't want to resort to violence, but they're calling on government to cut all ties to america and france because they say the government allowed these films to be published and these cartoons to be published as well. they're mad at the american and french governments, and they said in afghanistan and other muslim countries they would not resort to violence because of that. tamron. >> the secretary of state hillary clinton is meeting with the pa

as the united states prepares to commemorate 9/11 and as the war in afghanistan is an issue in the presidential race. joining me now is evan coleman. we say it's an issue in the presidential race. actually, you know the headline out of the past two weeks. mitt romney did not mention afghanistan in his big speech. his people said he gave the speech the day before right before that. with that said, are you surprised we're not talking about afghanistan more as it relates to it? >> i'm not. it's politically unpopular. no candidate wants to get up and say, i'm very aggressive in favor of a continued presence in afghanistan. nobody wants to say that. mitt romney is smart enough to understand that. >> let me talk about the prisba prison. how do we process this? >> we were what happened to abu ghraib in baghdad. it's not good to have prisons in foreign countries. the problem is this. number one, the afghan government has a terrible record in terms of keeping control of the prisons. >> there have been breakouts. >> huge breakouts back a few years ago in kandahar, someone blew a hole in the side of the p
